Teachers do not often have access to mentors to do observations and give them feedback on classroom practice. Analyse lesson recordings using AI to provide feedback to teachers on their classroom practice and promote reflective practice through questioning. Digitisation, Management and use of education information Audio: ASR, Audio: Classification, Audio: Text2Speech, Large Language Models, ML: Classification, ML: Clustering, ML: Dimensionality Reduction, ML: Regression, NLP: Generation

Ability to assess oral language ability effectively is either limited or time-consuming. Tools for detecting voice and assessing proficiency in a spoken language. Digitisation Audio: ASR, Large Language Models, ML: Classification, ML: Clustering, ML: Dimensionality Reduction, NLP: Generation

Assessment results are not well used to inform teaching or help struggling students catch up. Assessment analysis used to identify learning gaps, identify areas for support and make personalised recommendations for future learning and effective remediation. Analytics, Personalisation Large Language Models, ML: Classification, ML: Clustering, ML: Dimensionality Reduction, ML: Regression, MM: Image2Text, NLP: Generation

Current ways of presenting key assessment data lack predictive capability so teachers are not able to plan effectively. AI can analyse student assessments and develop reports on achievement for teachers that provide predictions to support planning.

Large class sizes make marking written classroom assessments time-consuming and limit student feedback. AI can facilitate automatic marking of handwritten assessments and generation of personalised student feedback. Digitisation, Personalisation Large Language Models, Large Multi-Modal Models, ML: Classification, MM: Image2Text, NLP: Generation

Teachers are not able to monitor or support students working in groups because of large class sizes. Record group work and use AI to analyse collaborative discussion to generate suggestions for future teaching and support.

How We Have Categorised

AI Tools

AI Tool Categories • Definitions

While developing our AI ideas list we’ve also put together a list of the AI tools that might be used to solve the issues set out in each idea. The aim is to help us identify and prioritise what tech to develop and to understand the problems we want to solve.

See AI Tools List

What Does It Do?

Function • Purpose

Some of the AI applications are performing similar functions (even though serving different parts of the Teaching and Learning Framework). For example, AI chatbots could be used by teachers to support Teacher Learning, or by students to support Student Learning. We’ve put together eight functions that AI tools perform to solve the education issues identified. The aim is to help us group similar ideas together for ease of navigation.
